    That’s >4kW. Depending on what one’s rate for power is, may not be trivial.

    MTN stands for Motion. It means that a motion command has been issued. The FIN says the PMC is waiting for an input to occur.

    Implement has the answer. I have seen the same surface conditions in Ti investment castings being machined. It’s not an issue just related to forging.

    8000 and 9000 series programs (macros) are written by the machine builder, not Mitsubishi. You will need to post who the machine builder is and hope that someone here has the same machine and...

    Softkey functions are implemented through the ladder or builder U/I so no reason/need to use a macro then. The function's instructions would hard coded into the ladder or U/I program. Not something...

    One thing I have seen with rotary and PP type 3 phase converters is that, referenced to ground the "manufactured" leg is noticeably higher voltage than the "grid" legs. When using the "grid" legs as...

    Yeah, I was thinking of something else when I replied. Sorry! :o

    This is not correct. Jack Saxwold was the head of Ellison NW and later followed by his son.

    John Goes has worn many hats in the decades he has worked at Ellison and IME, a pretty decent guy. ...

    Polygon turning does not use live tools, just regular turning tools. Never seen it optioned on anything other than screw machines.

    Don't know anything about the iron....

    Yaskawa servos and spindle are good, high quality, but old. The Autocon label along with the Dynapath label makes me think this is really early Dynapath. ...

    Probably a softkey or keeprelay. I have seen a couple instances where it was hard coded on in the ladder.

    The old days of having a toggle on the panel caused so many places trouble when...

    Say you have two critical diameters along a part cut by the same tool. If you use separate offsets for each diameter, it's easy to adjust each diameter separately. Some folks will do this by...

    Check that the Manual Absolute setting or switch is turned on. The machine builder determines how they want that so you will need to check you Sharp manual to see how they do that.

    If you have a working RS232 setup then you use the selection "99" and the file names ALL1, ALL2, and ALL3 on the I/O page to send the parameters and ladder to the PC.

    Once you get that far we can...

    I've never tried changing a parameter that requires power down by the G10 command. While it might change the parameter, I'd expect that you would still get the power down alarm. Even if it did not...

    The most common cause of zero return trouble is a sticky decel switch.

    The G28 function when executed in a program or MDI is handled differently than a manual zero return. The G28 does not use...

    Do you have RS-232 setup to the control or do you have a card reader on it?

    Adding some "dummy lines" after the M30 might be a suitable work-around. You might look at the settings in your software for a checkbox labeled something like "keep port open" or a time delay for...

    What software are you using for the dripfeed? I have seen similar where the software closes the RS-232 port despite there being some data still in the buffer that has not transmitted yet. I suspect...

    Does the other muffler on that valve leak when the carousel is extended? If so, then you have a leaky piston seal in the extend/retract cylinder.

    It worked pretty well as a VTL. We turned ~36" diameter Inconel castings on it with good results. Good tool life. For milling it would often not cut as well as the 40 taper Makinos in the next...

    Other Brother's suggestion is right on the mark. Far more common for the overload alarm at rapid to be the result of something binding/dragging versus a motor or drive problem.
